    Alright, so I'm thinking all of us from Kentucky (and Cinci, and the immediate parts of Indiana and Tenessee) should link up for a bit at BotCon.

    Green Hornet comes out that weekend. Perhaps we go see that Friday night since they're not holding MSTF in order to give everyone the night off?

    Other suggestions are welcome of course.

    Green Hornet? When did we time warp back to 1965? I'm there anyway...

    Parts party is all well and good and you know you'll see us there, but I'm thinking something more determined. Set a time and day (Friday Night seems obvious) and maybe go offsite for a bit.

    I'll be there, but I have absolutely no idea what we are doing. I want to go to Epcott, but other than that nothing firm.

    I have been to 12 Botcons and I think this is the least planned out of the bunch. Maybe its because the prereg is so late.

    Megamus, if you are hosting a parts party, is there any chance you have the purple cannon from G1 Bludgeon? I have been looking for one for a year.

    So far, here's the folks from the area I know will be there:

    Insane Galvatron
    Weirdwolf
    Cutback4197
    Megamus
    Gen1Fan
    DeeJay
    Highrise
    Galvatro (and family)

    Toss in me and a friend of mine from DC and we're starting to represent a group capable of taking over a signifigant portion of a theater or restaraunt.

    Hiya, Sidecutter!

    Yeah, we'll definately be there. I have to talk it over with the Boss to see what she had planned before I commit to anything at all Fri. nite. However, and I leave this up to my fellow KY'ers and locals, could we make one minor exception for a Pennsylvanian if he can? I know that the Wives and kids can play together, which may leave him open for inclusion. If I can get things settled on this end, I am for some togetherness!

    Ash.

    I don't see any reason to exclude good friends who are there too. BraveMax would be with us after all.

    Well you guys are gonna force my hand. I was gonna wait until a week before Botcon to announce this but I guess to the locals a heads up won't hurt. On Friday we will be offering an exclusive figure. Limited and only available this year. We will be offering this figure at our booth but to get the special discounted price you will need to be at the parts party. I am of course open to suggestions but trust me, this figure is awesome, you do not want to miss it.

    Speaking of the parts party, what are the nights for that this year?

    The parts party will start on Wednesday night. We usuall have our highest turnout on Thursday and Friday after the dealers room closes. That is why we picked Friday to unveil the exclusive. I am bringing way more than usual this year and so is Gen1Fan. You can expect to see a lot, we are also doing something else new this year that will require as many members as possible. Every year we keep getting bigger and bigger. This year will be no exception.

    You need to start thinking about booking suites.

    I actually thought about that. Did not make it happen this year but definitely a thought. If things go according to plan that will have to happen. Oh and what is the news about Grimlock? Or is my money no good to you ;)

    Hah, I havn't forgotten about Grimlock, just havn't had a chance to speak with that person yet, no worries. I'll let you know as soon as I can.

    At the absolute very least, I want to see everyone from our area and some of our good friends gathered up in one place and and have someone take some pics of the group.

    I'm a big fan of old-school heroes, so Green Hornet is a definite win!

    We could make a big event out of a KY meet up;
    1 - Set up a reservation at some local restaraunt
    2 - Head to the AMC Theatre in Downtown Disney
    3 - Finish the night with drinks at one of the Hotel Bars at the Swan/Dolphin

    I wouldn't say no to a night like that!

    K-Prime, Signing Out!

    Well, I personally don't know if we really want to pre-plan that much. That may break budgets for several people, for instance, or interfere with things others have planned too much. The movie certainly seems possible though.

    I'm staying in Daytona since I have a free room there. Ideal for me would be thursday plans. I really don't want to drive an hour one way just to pick up my registration stuff. If we had a meetup planned, it would make it worth the drive.

    I'm all for Thursday but it will require a movie other than the intended one if twe do that most likely.
